To play on the word senior, the KSU Gerontology Club will be hosting an on campus Senior Prom 5k Race. Runners will be participating with fun and excitement in mind. They will be challenged to run in prom attire: GIRLS: dresses, tiaras, and corsages. GUYS: tuxes, suits, ties, or cumberbun, etc. The flashier and tackier -- the better. Throughout the race there will be stops where runners can dance to hits both past and present. There will of course be ample photo opportunities at each stop. The first male and female that cross the finish line will be crowned our Prom King and Queen. For our younger racers, the first little guy and gal to finish will be christened Prom Prince and Princess. This race will be open to all ages to truly make it an intergenerational event. This is an untimed event.
You'll need to register your little runners also via the runsignup.com in order to receive a shirt. A donation is suggested of $5 to cover the overhead for little guys and gals. The smallest shirt we have is a Youth X-Small.
Starts and ends at Bosco Student Plaza on the K-State Campus. Race will conclude with a prom reception complete with punch and cookies. Sounds of past decades will be playing in the background while we crown our prom king and queen.
Donations go to the KSU Gerontology Club and their initiative to promote successful aging and intergenerational relationship on and around the KSU campus.
The purpose of this organization shall be to foster an environment in which students and community members who are passionate about working with, and for, older adults can join together to promote successful aging, engage in intergenerational activities, and provide service opportunities to an aging population.
